Here is a recent comment from Bob Bennhoff, AspenCat Services Manager:
AspenCat libraries are excited about the move to Aspen Discovery. In partnering with ByWater for our discovery layer as well as our ILS, the future looks bright in having both work together seamlessly. I think Aspen Discovery is the best discovery layer product on the market today, but I'm most thrilled with all the new features yet to come.
